This is another in a series of posts I’m doing that cover some of the enhancements in the new Facebook App Redesign:

In today’s post, I’m going  the cover our new “Applicant Routing” option.  In the past, we collected all job applications on Syndicruit so that you can retrieve them at any time from within the Admin Panel of the Job Recruitment Facebook App:

We also emailed these job applications to users who have subscribed to receive them. But we’ve heard from some customers that they would like to route users to their own website and collect job applications there. For those circumstances, we now offer you an “Applicant Routing” feature. It’s available when you create a new job or edit an existing job. You can now choose to route candidates to an external website by simply specifying any website address:

Please note that once you choose to direct candidates to an external website, we no longer collect job applications on your behalf, so you won’t be able to retrieve them from within the Facebook App.

As always, we welcome your feedback on this change. And if you’d like to participate in an ongoing usability test that we’re conducting, we’d really like to hear from you. Together, I hope we can continue to improve the recruitment experience on Facebook.
